Mary Chapin Carpenter Announces Summer Tour

Mary Chapin Carpenter‘s upcoming tour dates in support of her Grammy-nominated project, ‘The Age of Miracles,’ have been announced. The 12-song collection is the singer-songwriter’s eleventh studio album, which she recorded in Nashville and produced alongside longtime collaborator Matt Rollings.

On ‘The Ages of Miracles,’ Mary Chapin admits her pulmonary embolism heath scare created a sense of fear that bled into her songwriting and the creative process.

“Fear may not be the first thing you think of when you listen to them,” Chapin tells CMT about songs like ‘Iceland‘ and ‘I Was a Bird.’ “But they speak to the desire to be free of burdens and troubles and the darkness and sense of disconnection I felt after I got out of the hospital — and to the sense of depression that descended after that. But then again I didn’t think that the album was going to be a narrative of just those things. I very much wanted to address the good things that came out of it, as well.”

The singer will, once again, travel with her full, five-piece band, with Jon Carroll on keys, John Jennings and Jim Henry on guitar, Don Dixon on bass and Vince Santoro on drums. A fall tour is also in the works, with October and November dates to be announced soon. Click here to find ticket prices and availability.
